VERSE:
                       C Bm Am G
I woke up this morning
         G   Am Bm  C
With a smile on my face
    C   Bm   Am     G
I threw out those stones
       G   Am Bm  C
That stood in my way
       C  Bm Am G
And I put on a new pair
    G    Am Bm    C
Of hard walking shoes
   C   Bm  Am   G
I woke up this morning
 G   Am   Bm   F
Laughing the blues
           F   Em  Dm    C
I woke up laughing the blues

BREAK:
              G
And when the talking on the TV
         F   Em   Dm   C
Tells me I should be scared
         G
I don’t let it overwhelm me
             F   Em  Dm   C
I know that joy will be there
              G
Behind every tear
          F
It might take a while
  F   Em  Dm    C
Might as well smile

C Bm Am G   G Am Bm C

VERSE:
             C Bm Am G            
I go to the corner
     G  Am Bm  C
And buy me a drink
   C  Bm Am   G
I say to the man
       G    Am   Bm   C
“This shit helps me think”
    C    Bm  Am  G
He says “who ya fooling?
      G  Am   Bm   C
Yeah, I know your type!!
    C  Bm Am  G
A dead woman walking”
 G Am  Bm    F
Maybe he’s right
         F  Em  Dm     C
I sure hope he ain’t right


BREAK:
               G
And when the preacher on the TV
         F   Em   Dm   C
Tells me I should be scared
         G
I don’t let it overtake me
              F   Em   Dm   C
I know that faith will be there
              G
Behind every fear
          F
It might take a while
  F   Em  Dm    C
Might as well smile

VERSE:
                C Bm Am G 
I woke up this morning
         G   Am Bm  C
With a smile on my face
 C  Bm  Am G
Without a warning
    G   Am  Bm C
My fear was e-rased
      C  Bm Am G
So I put on a new pair
     G   Am Bm    C
Of good walking shoes
   C   Bm  Am   G
I woke up this morning 
  G  Am  Bm    F
Laughing the blues
              F  Em  Dm  C
'Cause I got nothing to lose


BREAK:
            G
And if the darkness brings the thunder
             F   Em Dm C
My brother turns me a-way
        G
I will turn and love another
                F   Em Dm    C
There will be light in the shade
                       G
And that’s where I’ll lay
          F
It might take a while
                C    C Bm Am G
Might as well smile 
          F
Might as well

NOTE:
I Gave 3 different ways to play this song...
You can use the first way in its entirety which would be the best way in my opinion... Or you may use the easy version.... Lastly you can use the individual bass notes and walk up and walk down from one chord to another along with the easy version... Choose whatever way is easiest and sounds best to you....
